    She does look stunning. This is the second outfit she wore to the ceremony. Was the first (a green sari) also the same designer. Love how she kept in minimal & well accessorized.

    Wish bunny would also be a little better dressed to complement her, but they do make a charming couple. god bless xoxo

    he looks really odd….could it be the lack of tilak on his forehead? Anyways thanks to this article i know that he is engaged :[ and that sabya sachi makes kanjeevarams :]

    my question is why did this girl wear silver jewelry on a sari with no silver? could this be the fashion these days?

    1. Nalini at | | Reply

      I think thats all diamonds ….

    2. sa at | | Reply

      It is either white gold or platinum with diamonds…silver? no way..

    3. Preethi at | | Reply

      If I am not wrong, thats not silver…its diamonds !

    4. Hema at | | Reply

      Silver, hah….more likely, diamonds and lots of it:-) The guy does look odd though, esp. considering that the bride looks so beautiful and the sari is gorgeous. Didn’t know Sabya made Kanjevarams.

      OK idk if its platinum or white gold or whatever, but i mean it is silver COLORED…or it could be yellow gold hidden by diamonds but it don’t think so because the wait-belt-thing seems to be white-metal not diamonds.

      1. Anita at | | Reply

        Sameera – the waist belt is diamond studded as well.. none of her jewelry is silver colored. The diamonds might make it look like that, but I am from Hyd and believe me it’s not white metal.

    finally a bride who knows how to keep it classy.

    1. GG at | | Reply

      Agreed. She has stayed away from OTT jewelery and navel/cleavage exposure.

      I was searching all over the net for his collection. Can u plz update us

      1. swati at | | Reply

        i had no idea that he did kanjeevaram’s ….. I couldn’t find the collection anywhere online. Is it possible for you guys to upload his collection ?

        1. Neeha at | | Reply

          Sabya’s Vasanth Lakshmi collection was displayed in Elahe, Hyderabad in the first week of November…

          They were more than 50 kanjeevarams in various colours… jewellery designed by sabya in gold to match these sarees was also available

    2. Mash at | | Reply

      I did check it out on day one.. It’s gorgeous, old world kancheevarams like the ones my grandma used to own, with typical/exquisite Sabyasachi borders, paired with brocade (think Benarasi/Jamevar) blouses. AWESOME!

    So pretty and such a handsome couple. I’d love to wear something similar when that day comes

    Love Love the sari and she does look lovely but wish she has worn traditional jadau or polki jewelery the diamonds just dont go with the look.

    1. Sameera at | | Reply

      Chill…this is just the engagment not the vivah! Im surprised that she kept it this traditional.

    Sabya and Kanjeevaram??

    India,here I come……

  9. SS at | | Reply

    HHC, that is a tease….you tell us about Sabysachi and mention his Vasanthalaxmi collection and then NOTHING!! no fair, please find us a link, call Sabyasachi…tell him about your readers…

    love the saree, the bride’s “silver” accessories and how radiant she looks. The groom looks homeless…of course that might the be the very look he was after! ;)

    Great post!

    1. kasthuri at | | Reply

      The groom might go homeless after buying a few more sabya kanjeevaram sarees.. lol !

      but it does look beautifull…But i have seen plenty of such pretty sarees without the Sabya brand on them.

      But an almost sleeveless blouse with a kanjeevaram saree just doesnt go ! Kinda kills it in the close up shots.

      1. SS at | | Reply

        Agree with Kasthuri on the sleeveless blouse…i think it went a little too far.

        1. siri at | | Reply

          Its not sleeveless. It does have those ultra short sleeves that are more common nowadays.

  10. dn at | | Reply

    She looks very elegant and beautiful. Sabya and Kanjeevaram – this sounds interesting….. can’t wait to see them.

    He could have looked a little more groomed.

    Congrats to the pair!

    so lusting after the Sabya and Kanjeevaram connection, She looks amazing and very elegant, wish the guy could have been better!

  12. Candy at | | Reply

    PnP, please blog the first saree that she wore! she loooked ahhhmaaazing! its a green netted sabyasachi i think :)

  13. radhika at | | Reply

    the bride looks gorgeous!! :) the groom could’ve done better.

    sabyasachi and kanjeevaram? u made my day, p&p. now where do we buy them?

  14. charan at | | Reply

    Sabya, pls leave the kanjeevarams alone…

    I thought I would never have to say this but Bollywood actors need to learn a lot from Tollywood when it comes to classy weddings. This one was prime example.

    For once I didn’t have a hard time figuring out who the bride was and who the groom was and the bride wasn’t drowned out in a tonne of jewelery.

    Wow… this much for an engagement. Cannot imagine how lavish/OTT the wedding proper will be.

    1. Sameera at | | Reply

      Southies like to keep it traditional even for the engagement ….but we rarely go OTT for the weddings.

      1. KS at | | Reply

        Well i love my south indian friends a lot but they dont go OTT for wedding????
        A south indian bride’s gold jewelery is equivalent to total GDP of a small country.Have you ever seen a kerela bride? :)
        For my SI friends who are reading, you know i love you.

        1. Anita at | | Reply

          that’s because you cannot generalize southies’ dressing style. Telugu folks – especially in the business communities have a very lavish style of dressing that’s not found in others. Kerala bridal attire seems to be very unique – noone in Andhra Pradesh wears that style of gold jewelry, and among affluent telugus, gold was abandoned atleast a couple of decades ago in favor of diamonds, and now jadau and polki are trendy as well. But I cringe everytime someone generalizes south indian dressing, food etc..

    I am a little bit on the fence regarding Sabya designing handlooms. No doubt a designer has a hand in how the product looks. But very often his clothes are not terribly different from traditional hand woven stuff. Its good that there is a craft revival of sorts but can we keep in mind that the beauty of these clothes often has less to do with a designer and more to do with the skills of craftsmen who keep at it inspite of the vagaries of the market. It helps to pay tribute to the makers.

    If anyone is interested Tradition and Beyond: Handcrafted Indian Textiles has some lovely sarees that came out of weavers collectives and the like. Way better than anything I have seen here-though sadly I don’t think even it improved the lot of weavers.

      I am going to HYD in Jan – Can you suggest where I can get handloom sarees.

    4. KS at | | Reply

      @AM
      Chances are the most handlooms (other than Sewa and very few others) that we buy traditional weaves from pay peanuts to the weavers whereas Sabya and other designers make sure the ground root level that works on them is wellpaid. And that is why they are special.Also i know many girls who had absolutely no interest or knowledge of traditional saris until they saw sabya’s name on it.For many girls chiffon and likes are the only saris worth wearing.sad but true.

    5. AM at | | Reply

      @KS I can’t say what Sabya pays. And I did mention his role in craft revival. However I get a bit annoyed that it is a “Sabya” saree when a large part of it is clearly due to the efforts of craftsmen who keep at it inspite of a lack of interest from the public (and hey we see on this site too the quick branding of handlooms as behenji) and who no matter how fair a designer still earn a pittance. This is true of couture houses too but a Western dress requires heaps more variations on cuts and tailoring than Indian clothes. The designer is therefore strictly not a designer but is more like a brand which allows you to think that well here I get a certain aesthetic that I like. It would be nice if people kept that in mind.

      I agree it is definitely a pity that unless Ms Rai sports a Sabya, no one is interested in our own heritage. Even though its quite clear that our traditional dyeing and weaving is far more sophisticated than much of the rest of the world.

    Such a beautiful saree .Loved the color combo and the way she kept it simple and classy

  21. sharon at | | Reply

    Its funny how her jewelry isnt really simple but overall comes out simple and classy due to her grooming. Nicely done:-) Hmm a glance at the guy next to her……..and now back to the girl to soothe my eyes….

    Priyanka, cant believe u put such small pics of the beautiful function..Arjun and his girlfriend look awesome! Read on other site, his suit was worth 50000rs and her saree 1 lakhrs. The diamonds go well with the pink saree. They look cute together.

  25. prani at | | Reply

    Can anyone tell me how much do these sarees cost around? or atleast the cost of one that she is wearing?
